The community-oriented Unity Linux is a minimalist distribution and live CD which was originally based on Mandriva Linux, but is now maintained as an independent distribution. The project's main goal is to create a base operating system from which more complete, user-oriented distribution can easily be built - either by other distribution projects or by the users themselves. Unity Linux uses Openbox as the default window manager. Its package management is handled via YUM and RPM 5 which can download and install additional software packages from the project's online repository.
